I have had clients contact me directly to license a track they found on AJ and WANT to pay more because the price was so low they didn’t believe it was real or that the license was valid.
They totally gutted and tried to make it a souped up version of iMovie. Every professional editor I know has stopped using it and moved to either Adobe Premier or Avid. Basically they tried to dumb it down to make it more mass market and in doing so removed most of the “Pro” features. Honestly it is really sad.
It looks like Apple is abandoning the “Pro” users in favor of mass market consumer products.
I would wait to see what the next version looks like. If they do to it what they did to Final Cut Pro it will be un-useable.
Thanks for including me!
I’ve seen quite a few guys play drums on keys, some are really great at it but I don’t ever feel like they groove or fit in the pocket like a live drummer. There is nothing like having a world class drummer play on your tracks – the feel and nuances they achieve are amazing!
I used to work for an advertising agency that made $40,000 a year by holding their vendor payments 90 days before paying them.
I have to concur with Gareth’s post. I live in Nashville which is a music center in the United States. There is a term used in Nashville called being “A Good Hang”. That basically means you are cool/fun to hang around with both in the studio and out. As with most of the music business – it’s all about relationships here as well.
Congrats! I love your work!
